Recently, a grassroots Isomalk-3 unit successfully started up in Jinling Petrochemical, a Sinopec subsidiary located in Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province, China. The unit takes n-butane as feedstock and isomerizes it to the i-butane product.

The capacity is 600KTA, making this the largest operational n-butane isomerization unit in the world. The i-butane product is used as the feedstock to the adjacent PO/MTBE co-production complex, a joint venture between Huntsman and Sinopec Jinling.
